I have a series of removable disks that I use to put
my dumps on. If one of these disks gets stolen, it
will be a serious problem.
Anyone have any advice as to how to make the data
useless to any potential thief? Encryption, passwords,
Just figured it out (and feel a bit stupid).
I have to do two dumps to backup up my system as
I have two partitions. The "/" partition and the
"/export" partition. All the users data -- the private
stuff -- is on the export partition.
So, partition my backup drive into two. One in the clear
for the "/" partition and the other one as an encrypted
partition for "/export".
To restore, use the install disk in "rescue" mode and
restore the "/" partition. At that point, boot normally
and restore the encrypted, now readable, "/export"
One of those "duh" moments.
Hope this rambling helps someone else,
